PEANUTTY OKRA

1 cup all-purpose baking mix
1/2 cup finely chopped dry-roasted peanuts
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 lb fresh okra, cut into 1/4-inch pieces OR 1 pkg (16-oz) frozen cut okra, thawed
Peanut oil for frying

In a large bowl, stir together baking mix, chopped peanuts, salt and pepper. Add the okra, tossing to coat; gently press the mixture onto the okra.

Pour oil to 2-inches deep in a cast iron skillet or use a deep fryer. Oil should reach 375 degrees. Fry the okra in batches for about 4 minutes or until golden. Drain okra on paper towels on a cookie sheet.

Yield: 4 servings
